Description

Beyond Trauma Informed Care with At-Risk Youth: Healing Individual and Collective Trauma

Lynn A. Williams, Ph.D

This workshop will explore the many layers of trauma that impact at-risk youth. Research shows that 90% of youth in detention have experienced at least one trauma, 84% experienced more than one trauma, and over 55% reported being exposed to trauma six or more times. It is imperative that we not only look at the individualized trauma needs for these young people, but also how systemic patterns of marginalization, racism, poverty, and other forms of oppression impact them on a collective level. This workshop will cover engaging and collaborative approaches that are being utilized to facilitate healing in our local community and detention homes today, such as juvenile justice jeopardy, storytelling, drumming and yoga. This workshop will include personal narrative, research, clinical cases, creative arts and participatory embodied exercises. Utilizing these integrated approaches to healing keeps us away from “victim-blaming” and encourages us to see the entire context from which the youth comes from and lives within. Through this holistic lens, we engage in transformational practices that address the root causes of trauma in our at-risk youth today rather than just its manifestations. By promoting healing of trauma on both the individual and collective levels we can promote true social change and justice.
